St. Matthew's Episcopal Church Maple Glen, Pennsylvania

Focus on the Future – The Congregation Assessment Tool (CAT)

We are inviting you to complete the Church Assessment Tool (CAT), an online survey that will help us gauge the strength, vitality, and trends in our church. The information gained from this assessment will be valuable in helping us to write a more complete Parish Profile, and will be useful information for the Search Committee to have in hand as they interview candidates.

Below you will find the link to the survey. We ask that you complete it as soon as possible, but before Sunday, March 22nd.

All answers are strictly anonymous.  We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so please feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions and experiences.  The assessment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. 

Please feel free to share this link with other members of your household. We welcome anyone to participate in the survey who has been active in the church through some combination of worship attendance, participation/leadership in ministry/education, and/or financial support within the last 12 months. Youth are welcome to participate provided they meet that criteria and are at least of high-school age.

When you are ready, please visit this link:

Please note the survey must be completed in one session.

If you do not have access to a computer, please contact the Parish Office and we will provide you with a printed copy of the survey. If you have any other questions, please contact Joe Buesgen at

Thank You!
We appreciate the time you are taking to thoughtfully complete this survey. Your responses will help us take the next step in our journey.

Yours in Christ,
